SILVERSTONE TO HOST BTCC SEASON LAUNCH
The official Season Launch event ahead of the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship will take place at Silverstone on 22 April.
Official championship photography and ITV filming duties will be carried out at the venue, as well as a number of other media interviews and activities.
The full quota of 29 BTCC cars will then take to the Silverstone National Circuit for the only official pre-season test day, with all teams and drivers due on-track together for the first time this year.
Six hours of testing will commence with the opening session between 1000-1300, before the afternoon segment runs from 1400-1700.
Live timing will be provided by TSL, whilst the official BTCC website and social media channels will be keeping fans up to date throughout the day.
Following the Government’s latest COVID-19 directives, spectators will unfortunately not be permitted to attend this event. Media access is set to be severely restricted, with details to follow from the BTCC Media Team.
Entries for the 2021 BTCC campaign closed at midday today (26 February), with all 29 participants now confirmed by Series Organiser TOCA. The official 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship entry list will be released, as per normal, on or just before the Season Launch.
